if you plugged the holes, how would the water get out? :donger:


Kinda hard to refrigerate something if you let it leak out into the ground eh?


Then why do you even make holes in the first place?

Hey, Rico.

Haven't checked in for about a year.

Glad to hear you're doing well over there and that the plumpkin passion has never petered like my personal pickle pining of past!

Stay in touch, old pal.

Get the poll up for next year and put me under the “5000+ kg” category.
Also, let's keep this thread about Galchenyuk's on-ice performance, development and value and NOT bring in his personal life or race.

What the world needs is for you to figure out a way to grow pumpkins without having one side all squashed down and horribly disfigured. You find a way to do that and you will be a rich and celebrated man (more so)!

We already discussed this Dog, my solution was to divise an elastic pumpkin hammock, to suspend the pumpkin upright over a depression in the ground around it. The grower would adjust the slack/tension as the pumpkin grew, and if you put a load cell on in you could get real time weight and growth chart.

I have yet to be celebrated for this idea.

You should form a partnership with Rico in the giant pumpkin business. You guys would be like Reece's peanut butter cups of pumpkin growing.

You have not been celebrated because you brought forth an inelegant and cumbersome solution, engineer.

I say we grow pumpinks in an anti-gravity chamber!

It also wouldnt work. It would still make a flattened side. You would need a revolving cradle or anti gravity as suggested.
